DolorClast® Focused Shock Waves to address deep chronic musculoskeletal pathologies

Deliver the highest energy and cavitation to tackle deep recalcitrant tendinopathies

Total energy density is greater with the PiezoClast® than the best-in-class competition. 

Provide comfort even when treating highly painful enthesopathies

Address patients with a low-tolerance threshold of pain.
 

Obtain a maintenance free console that boosts your practice profitability

The electronic generator doesn't require any maintenance or service.

What makes the Swiss PiezoClast® so unique?

Studies demonstrate that the PiezoClast® peaks of positive and negative pressure are 2 times higher than other devices (+110 MPa Versus +45 MPa  and -20 MPa versus -11 MPa)1, which means that total energy density is greater with the PiezoClast® than the second best other device.

High performances piezoceramic technology to:

  • Deliver a twice as high Peak pressure than competitive devices
  • Treat even the deepest pathologies thanks to a penetration of 8 cm
  • Treat anywhere anytime with a transportable device and a weight of 10 Kg

2. Overcome pain

Piezoelectric generator avoids mechanical displacement to comfortably treat sensitive patients or pathologies such as enthesopathies

3. Low running maintenance costs

  • Maintenance free console
  • Handpiece lifetime of > 5M impulses
  • No water cooling system
     

Case study of focused shock waves:

I am very pleased to be able to offer focused shock wave therapy for mountaineers' finger pain, because in the past our interventions have not helped sufficiently with this type of injury and there have been a few cases where we have not helped the patient at all. However, with shock wave therapy we are seeing more and more cases approaching a solution.
